The picturesque community of Fachwen is scattered amongst the wooded slopes located above Padarn Lake just a short distance from the Eryri/Snowdonia National Park. Fachwen resides on the opposite shore from the lively tourist village of Llanberis, a world renowned tourist destination and Mecca for climbers seeking the great outdoors amidst magnificent scenery. The nearest village of Deiniolen has a primary school and village store whilst Llanrug offers two village stores, primary and secondary schools as well as a few other welcome amenities.

Agents Note
The vendors have informed us that due to an ingress of water in 2012 from blocked land drain, they reported to insurers but no claim was made as minimal damage was caused. Following this they were refused insurance from 1 agent when looking for a new insurance company (2013), however they have said that they have had no problems obtaining house insurance since then.
